Primary PE Funding

Sporting Influence PE Funding programmes work alongside the school to improve their provision of PE and Sport across the whole school.

We are currently in our third year of delivering these packages to schools across the West and North Yorkshire area and have over twenty schools that we work with on a weekly basis.

All work is performed by highly experienced and qualified PE staff and Sports Coaches. Evidence is collected throughout the year and collated by Sporting Influence to present to inspectors, governors and any interested parents. After a consultation with the Head teacher we sit down and discuss what is needed in the school and the time they want spent on each particular sport or teacher.

Typically a Head teacher would speak to staff and find out where they lacked confidence and ideas, this might be an NQT worried about gymnastics or invasion games or an experienced teacher who needs new ideas to inspire them and change the drills they have done for years.

The Professional Development model has received fantastic feedback and is a really thorough and highly beneficial programme. We work alongside the class teacher over a minimum of 6 hours which involves observing, followed by team teaching, leading and finally planning a session and receiving written feedback. Lesson plans and resources are provided to the teachers for them to follow and sustain what they have learnt. A typical six week CPD evidence pack would include: session plans, a teacher feedback sheet highlighting what they have enjoyed and learnt and a written lesson observation.

Competitions for all – A structure of Intra (in school) competitions that follow the sports that have been taught in that particular term. Schools are asked to encourage every student to take part. House points are awarded for taking part, winning matches, sportsmanship and teamwork.

Gifted and Talented / Inter competitions – between schools are organised at Harrogate High School so that the pupils get to play against talented performers from nearby schools whilst using high quality sports facilities. Sporting Influence also offer specific gifted and talented sessions within schools.

Key Stage One themed/ story telling PE lessons covering the fundamental skills and providing fun ideas for teachers.

PE Assessment – using our own visual Sporting Influence tool to assess the pupils and the impact and progress over the year.
